Bow-chicka-OH-MY: A look at the world's web porn searches

Porn. Let's be honest: aside from sharing cat photos and illegally downloading music, it's one of the major reasons that people use the web across the globe. But have you ever wondered what people are actually searching for around the world?

Well, the world's largest porn search engine, PornMD - keen as ever to satisfy your needs - has created an enlightening interactive infographic, revealing the top ten internet porn search terms in scores of countries, collated over a six-month period. 

The United States gets the most detailed breakdown, with each state seeing its own top ten. Of course, we'll leave you to make your own judgements on 'ebony' being the most popular search in Arkansas, North Carolina and Maryland, and 'Asian' topping the list in California.

Down in South America, web-whackers are fiercely patriotic, with those in Colombia, Argentina and Brazil all searching primarily for fellow countrymen and women to admire. Curiously, while Chilean and Venezuelan onanists have a similar regard for their own nations, searches within those countries were overwhelmingly dominated by the hunt for gay content. 

That said, many European citizens apparently favour domestic searches first and foremost, with those in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France and Norway (among others) looking primarily for homegrown content. But Europe is also home to some of the more eyebrow-raising searches - particularly when you remember that these are top-10 searches, and not just one-offs.

In Finland, for example, the top two search terms were 'mature' and 'granny', while in Ukraine, the most popular search was for 'raincoat (gay)'. But one has to wonder what they're smoking in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania - we'll leave you to check those lists for yourself...!

While a great many of the most popular searches across the globe feature terms that you'd expect - and which you've probably also looked for yourself (you know the ones I mean...) - it's certainly eye-opening to see some of the more unusual terms from parts of the world that you might never expect them to, erm, pop up in. 

After all, who would have guessed that 'silver daddies' would be the top search term in... well, I won't spoil it for you.
